It was a typical Maple Shade boys' basketball game, which meant that three defenders were draped over James Johnson, the Wildcats' rock-solid senior center. There was one defender to the side, trying to deny Johnson the ball. There was another behind Johnson. And there was a third roaming the area, just in case Johnson got the ball. Johnson was getting banged around on every possession, but he never winced. Finally, he made a steal at half-court and, relishing his chance in the open floor, jetted to the hoop and dunked with gusto.

Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey has picked a cop who's been on the job for more than three decades to head the department's Internal Affairs Bureau. Deputy Commissioner Stephen T. Johnson, 58, will officially take charge of the bureau next week, succeeding Chief Inspector Anthony DiLacqua, who is retiring to become director of security at the SugarHouse Casino. Johnson, a former Daily News George Fencl Award winner who was most recently in charge of Homeland Security and Domestic Preparedness, is "the right person for that particular assignment," Ramsey said last night.

LEAVING A WEDDING, James Johnson escorts his sister Darcel Johnson and nieces Tonia and Nicky past a pile of trash that had been removed from a rowhouse on Christian Street in South Philadelphia. Neighborhood residents yesterday threatened to block the street to protest the pile but held off because of the wedding of Laura Johnson and James Jordan at a nearby church. As wide as two houses, the six-foot-tall trash heap contained furniture, mattresses and couches.

A column Monday about the Television Critics Association awards gave the wrong first name for author Jon Winokur, who accepted a lifetime achievement award from the TCA on behalf of actor James Garner. A July 26 story on a letter to President Obama by student Stefan Johnson incorrectly stated that Johnson was the first African American Catholic to be elected student council president at Roman Catholic High School. Johnson's letter made that claim, but at least three other African American Catholics have served as president in recent years.

There must have been something about the life and death of young Donte Johnson that tugged at the heart of the stranger. The stranger said he read in The Inquirer about Donte, a child of 5 with a broad smile and sparkling eyes - about how Donte's mother became enslaved by drugs and how the boy's father, Jay, struggled to care for him and keep his job. About how Jay Johnson reluctantly gave temporary custody of Donte to Wallace Ingalls, the boy's...

The two men who say they witnessed Derrick Thomas' murder don't agree on who did it. Gerald Wilkins says Rodney Williams did it. James Johnson says Rodney Williams didn't do it. Other witnesses said a dead man did it. Williams, 22, is on trial in Common Pleas Court for the slaying of Thomas, 19, who was shot to death for his gold chain in August 1991. Wilkins, 22, had testified that his friend Thomas died in his arms after the shooting. He said he saw Williams shoot Thomas and identified him in court.

West Deptford senior Terry Dougherty took third at last year's Gloucester County boys' cross-country championships. Training for this season, Dougherty had his eye on the title. The only problem was that the defending champion, James Johnson, also is a senior at West Deptford. Dougherty logged the miles this summer and has slipped past Johnson to become West Deptford's No. 1 runner. On Thursday, he became the No. 1 runner in Gloucester County. "It was a goal I was working to," Dougherty said.

Perhaps the only thing they had in common was the street where they lived. James Johnson is a 68-year-old retired maintenance worker who has lived with his wife in Grays Ferry for 43 years. Raheem Williams is an 18-year-old high school dropout who moved to the neighborhood about two years ago. Now they share the distinction of having been involved in a confrontation last week that sparked a melee between hundreds of blacks and whites Monday night on their street. The earlier incident occurred at about 5 p.m. on Aug. 6 on 30th Street near Dickinson, a few doors down from where Annette Williams, her son, Raheem, and nephew, Warren, said they were attacked in February by a group of white men. That sparked protests and marches.

WHEN Beemon Johnson arrived in Philadelphia to host a morning radio show in the early '80s, he wanted to learn about the city. "He wanted to know who his listeners were," said Marsha Perry, a longtime friend. "He wanted to find out what they needed so he could connect with them. " Beemon, whose popular show on Power 99 WUSL-FM was called "Beej in the Morning," also wanted to help his adopted city beyond just being entertaining. He made personal appearances and worked in community betterment activities.

TYRONE GARLAND was down to two schools. The Bartram High scoring machine was going to Virginia Tech or La Salle. "It was real close," Garland said while sitting in the La Salle basketball office Monday morning. "I had to sit down with my family, [said] these were the last two because I was getting tired of the whole process. Basically, we just decided to get away from home [Southwest Philly], get away from all the distractions. " He would finish out his senior year (2009-2010)

FOR THOSE football players who think they have respectable arms but are currently serving their teams in other positions, does James Johnson have a story for you! He takes us back to the 2009-10 school year, when he was a member of the JV squad at Mastery Charter North (Pickett Campus, actually, but it's known as North for sports purposes) and was enjoying decent success as a wideout. But then he engaged a schoolmate in a catch one day and coach John Davidson, fresh from being an assistant at George Washington, happened to be watching.

MewithoutYou: Bracing and all embracing Philadelphia-spawned band combines nerdy vocals and catchy/experimental indie rock 'n' folk production (with occasional flourishes of trumpet, tuba, organ, mandolin, etc.) in the service of spiritually minded story songs drawing from Jewish, Muslim and Christian imagery. Their goal - to "open wide my door" of perception and faith. Convincing even for daydream believers. Kindred emocore spirits Murder By Death and Buried Beds share the night.
